I realize that peace and joy can sometimes be hard to attain and may seem impossible to you right now. Your pain is real and putting on a happy face doesn’t quite masque it.
When Jesus was born the angel proclaimed, “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people” (Luke 2:10) There is joy in Jesus. Draw close to Him, and even with all the weight of the world pushing you down, He can still lift you up.
Here is a promise from God’s Word, a key you can use to tap into peace and joy in the midst of your struggle.
…pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then (and here comes the promise), you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.
I believe with all my heart that God’s Word is true. We need only to activate it with our faith and the words we speak. Start now and say something you are thankful for, and then another, and another and another. God is faithful. Peace and joy can be yours.
God Bless You and Merry Christmas!
